    Parker Molloy talked with Geoff Rickly of Thursday about how mental health issues in the arts needs to be talked about more:

    “I think mental health is still a source of great shame for most people,” Rickly adds. “Implying that there is anything wrong with their mind is still often considered an insult. For artists, I think there’s a sense that we don’t have much (money, material success) but the one beautiful thing that we get as an artist is a state of mind, a high level of imagination and a lot of time to explore it. If you devalue that, by saying our thinking is sick, it takes away from the one thing we have of any value. Or it can feel that way.”

    Geoff sure has his fair share of demons. I love how candid, well spoken, and thoughtful he is, especially on issues such as mental health. New Thursday music pleeeeeaaaase!
